YesAsia Editorial Description

On September 6, 1923, five days after the Great Kanto earthquake, a group of peddlers from Kagawa were attacked by over 100 villagers and vigilantes at Fukuda Village in Chiba Prefecture. As the peddler group spoke in Sanuki dialect, they were suspected of being Korean. Nine people were killed, including women and children. Eight members of the vigilante group were arrested and sentence to prison, and then immediately released on amnesty. Buried in the darkness of history, the Fukuda Village Incident was part of the Kanto Massacre targeting ethnic Koreans that claimed thousands of lives in the aftermath of the Great Kanto earthquake.

Documentary filmmaker Mori Tatsuya dramatizes this brutal, forgotten page of Japanese history in his first narrative feature film September 1923. The winner of the New Currents Award at the 2023 Busan Film Festival, the powerful and provocative film sets the context with characters of different backgrounds – a former teacher, a war widow, a boatman, a journalist, a union activist, peddlers – portrayed by an ensemble cast that includes Iura Arata, Tanaka Rena, Misaki Koshi, Higashide Masahiro, Kato Shinsuke, Kiryu Mai and Nagayama Eita. Various people go about their normal lives underlined by conflicts, traumas and discrimination that paint a greater picture of society at large. In the aftermath of the deadly Great Kanto earthquake, vicious rumors about Korean people spread. Long-simmering xenophobia and prejudice explode into horrific, widespread mob violence, while authorities use the situation to eliminate left-wing activists and reformers.
